Staff evaluations

The 2020 staff performance evaluation was postponed in spring as a result of the pandemic situation. An abbreviated fall midyear review will be conducted for all staff hired on or before July 31, 2020, utilizing the new electronic format.

HR continues to upgrade the PeopleAdmin System used to maintain position data, post jobs and screen job candidates. It is now time to implement a new module, “Performance Management,” to allow for electronic processing of UNT staff performance evaluations, beginning with the Fall 2020 midyear review.  The new Performance Management module system will be live for the midyear review, which will be held from September 15 through November 15, 2020. The system will be open to supervisors on September 15.

During the midyear review, supervisors should adjust and reset goals for staff, which will be evaluated in spring. We recognize that some positions were greatly impacted by the onset of the pandemic necessitating a shift in priorities and goals beginning in March, which may require that goals be updated.

Faculty evaluations will continue to be processed in the Faculty Information System (FIS).

Goals for this new module include

  • transitioning from paper evaluations to an electronic system that more accurately tracks review processes, dates, and scores
  • creating a more efficient and less manual evaluation process
  • improving employee and supervisor experiences in the evaluation process
  • maintaining a central location for storage of employee goals, position responsibilities, competencies (where utilized), performance notes, and evaluation results
